Free Download: Tangram Treats - Low Colour Task Cards and Templates


A set of 36 low colour tangram task cards separated into three levels, along with two tangram cut-out templates.

Use this resource when exploring geometric shapes and their properties with the students. This resource includes three difficulty levels for the construction of tangram shapes:

  • Individual shapes and hues
  • Individual shapes with black outline
  • Silhouette only with black outline

This resource also contains tangram templates for cutting out which relate to the different levels.

A version without background graphics has been included for low ink printing.

Use the drop-down menu to select the following download options:
